Join us for some festive fun around the estate every weekend during December.

Take a trip through the decorated house and hit the quest to help Arthur the elf track down his presents . Make a funky festive elf stick in the Great Hall and cuddle up to some snuggly elves in the Christmas book  corner of the Library. There’s bauble embroidery in the Chinese Room, linen napkin folding and dressing-up in the Picture Gallery and Victorian food displays in the Still Room too! Don’t forget to stop off in the Boudoir, elf yourself and take the perfect (s)elfie during your visit! There’s musical performances at selected times too.

Head to Home Farm to see your favourite farmyard friends bedding down for winter. Discover the living nativity and get involved with Christmas crafts including wreath making in the Hare Building and clay tile crafting in Dunstan Hall. Keep a look out for cheeky elves hiding around the cobbled courtyards and outbuildings and there’s storytelling with Elwood the Elf on selected dates too!

All activities are included within the general admission price. Santa visits are a little extra at £5 per child (under 1s are free). Please book ahead by calling 0113 336 7460.

During December the house will be open from 1-4pm on Saturdays and Sundays. Home Farm is open Tuesday -Sunday from 10am-4pm with Christmas activities on Saturdays and Sundays.
